Things may be getting serious between Holly Madison and Benji Madden. Rumored to be dating since December, In Touch Weekly says the pair are thinking about shacking up. “Benji cares very much for Holly,” says their source. “They have been talking about living together.” The pair were rumored to have split in January, only to be seen snogging at a recent video shoot for Madden proteges the It Boys. “Benji kept telling her how amazing she looked. They couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t keep their eyes off each other.” Hopefully the It Boys didn’t feel too ignored.
The ex-Girl Next Door and Good Charlotte guitarist might just be perfect for each other, considering their taste in partners and previous heartbreaks. Madison dated tattooed magician Criss Angel after leaving Hef’s stable in 2008, only to declare she was never dating again last March (though she has been spotted reuniting with Angel and flirting with Russell Brand since). Benji’s had his own romantic troubles, splitting from fiancee Sophie Monk in 2008 and dating Paris Hilton the same year. With Holly’s pal Kendra and Benji’s brother Joel settled down with partners babies, these two may be looking for similar comforts.
Gabourey Sidibe may not have won an Academy Award Sunday, but it sounds like she had the time of her life anyway. Not only did she enjoy the glamor and gifting superstars take for granted, she also enjoyed a more recent Hollywood ritual: getting hit on by Gerard Butler. Butler was walking past Sidibe and Access Hollywood‘s Billy Bush when her suggestion of “I’d hit that” reached the 300 actor’s ear.Ã‚Â Though she was initially apologetic, Butler made clear she had nothing to be ashamed of. “I’m here, I’m available…let’s go!”
Sidibe countered “LetÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s grab a bottle of champagne and see where the night goes,” reaffirming why she’s the awesomest person ever and needs to have an ongoing career in Hollywood. Was it just playful banter, though? Something about Gerard makes us think he’s done stranger things. At the very least, let’s get these two on a movie poster together pronto.

Ryan Phillippe might want to consider throwing himself into his work—the search for a rebound following his break-up with Abbie Cornish does not appear to be going well. The Stop-Loss star spent last week carousing New York Fashion Week (the photo above was taking outside the Calvin Klein’s Women Collection show) and, according to Radar, striking out with supermodels. “He saw [Victoria's secret model Doutzen Kroes] across the room and asked someone who knew her to introduce them…she had no idea who he was. She was polite and said hello, but she wasn’t interested at all.” The fact that he was in an Oscar movie (Crash, remember? Matt Dillon‘s partner!) apparently didn’t win over Victoria’s Secret’s Selita Ebanks either. Didn’t they at least see Cruel Intentions? You know, the movie he did with Reese Witherspoon, his…ex-wife. “Women he meets think he’s hung up on Reese still, given how much he talks about her,” says Radar‘s source.
But Ryan hasn’t given up hope: E! says the actor was spotted perusing the condom aisle at a West Hollywood CVS. “He seemed really nervous. After looking through them for a while he just dropped his basket on the floor and ran out of the store.” Sure, he may have just noticed the snooper, but we like to think a certain Counting Crows song played over the intercom.

Hey, it’s not illegal to sing about it, right? Bret Michaels somehow got Miley Cyrus to join him on his new single, “Nothing To Lose,” despite steamy lyrics that don’t really scream for the assistance of a 17-year-old (at least not in public). While Bret handles the opening verse—something about a woman’s pain—Cyrus joins in on the questionable chorus: “Won’t you fall down on me/ so close I can feel you breathe/ Tonight in the darkness/ if the truth is all we can see/ If I fall for you/ would you fall for me?” Depends what state we’re in, Miley!
If that wasn’t skeevy enough for you, the second verse has them admitting “Yeah, we both know better than this/ but we still can’t resist / slowly get undressed/ yeah, she does/ when she falls down on me…” To be fair, Miley sings along with that final “she,” suggesting she may merely be a loudly mixed third party rather than a participatant in Bret’s romantic fantasy. “Bret and I had a great time in the studio together just hanging out and making music,Ã¢â‚¬Â Miley said on her website after recording the track late last year. “HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s is so passionate about music and it shows. I think it is such a rad collaboration because it shows that two artists that seem so different on the outside can come together and organically create something that we are both proud of.” He certainly takes her seriously as an adult, it seems.
Check out the track after the jump.
Mary-Kate Olsen is single and loving it. A representative confirmed today that the fashion freak has split from boyfriend Nate Lowman. No reason has been given for the break, though between pregnancy rumors, engagement rumors and talk of Olsen getting close to Bradley Cooper, we’re impressed it lasted even this long.
The gossip mill, not taking long to put Olsen back on the market, has already hooked her up with Josh Hartnett at a BAFTA afterparty. “They were making out in a dark corridor of the party,” a source told People, though Olsen’s rep denied the claim. This wouldn’t be the first time Hartnett’s suffered an unfounded rumor in England—Hartnett won a libel suit against The Mirror after they claimed to have a surveillance video of the 30 Days Of Night actor getting freaky with a fan in a hotel library. Maybe he can score some cash off this rumor, too.

Ginny Weasley loves Caius! Harry Potter star Bonnie Wright confirmed to England’s OK! that she’s been dating New Moon vampire Jamie Campbell Bower since last October. “Yes, we’re dating. We’ve been seeing each other for a few months, it’s good. We’re going to the BAFTAs together on Sunday.” The pair, who’ve already been spotted getting cozy on the red carpet for a while, met on the set of Harry Potter And The Death Gallows, where Bower will make his series debut as Gellert Grindelwald. Congratulations, Bonnie! You’re now the envy of Twi-hards and girls who wish they were the future Mrs. Potter.

Adam Lambert knows how to keep his fans on their toes, especially the ones who refuse to accept that he’s gay. In a recent radio interview, Lambert matter-of-factly explained that he will not be boxed in by his sexuality, which is why he recently made out with Ke$ha at a club. Say whaaa?
Lambert, on radio show BLI in The Morning, explained that he recently decided to indulge his hetero-curious side saying “I made out with Ke$ha a couple nights ago. . . She’s really pretty and we were laughing and…just started kissing!” And if you were curious, Lambert confirms she’s “a great kisser”. We’re about 110% sure this means nothing and Glambert is still gay as can be, but it does go to show you that when men and women share eye glitter, sparks can fly regardless of sexual preference.

Plenty of people probably told Brody Jenner and Avril Lavigne that they could respectively do better than Jayde Nicole and Sum 41′s Deryck Whibley, but we can’t imagine anyone saying they should do each other. According to E! News, the Hills star and the pop singer are getting romantic, even being spotted clubbing at Voyeur together twice. “They’re hooking up, but they’re keeping it low-key,” said the source. Hmmm…well, Brody is a sk8erboi!
“You can tell they’re into each other and both like to have a good time,” says another source. “They’re cute together.” While the former couples are reportedly on good terms (Whibley is co-produced Lavigne’s upcoming album, Pink Crust), we still hope Nicole wasn’t aware of her ex’s dalliance with Lavigne when she interviewed Tyson Ritter of the All-American Rejects for Radar, as Ritter wouldn’t shut up about a wild night shared with the Canadian mall-punk. “We went to a strip club…She is full on divorced, and if that’s not a divorce, that is a swinger!” Maybe we shouldn’t make too much of this new pairing, then.

Attendees at CAA’s Super Bowl bash in Miami Saturday may have been amused to see Alex Rodriguez grinding on the dancefloor with Cameron Diaz, but at least one tabloid has stepped up with an anonymous source to suggest this was more than an innocent flirtation. “A-Rod and Cameron have been totally hooking up,” some bean-spiller totally told OK! Magazine. Not that they can say when and where the pair have been sharing these secret rendezvous. After all, hasn’t she been busy squatting on top of co-star Tom Cruise on the set of Knight And Day when not practicing yoga in the Caribbean?
The who-dated-who web is getting pretty tangled if these two are actually an item, as the Enquirer suggested Kate Hudson tried to get over her split with A-Rod by macking on Justin Timberlake at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. Timberlake, of course, is a long-time “friend” of Hudson’s who dated Miss Diaz before hooking up with the now-long-suffering Jessica Biel. Complicating things further, A-Rod’s ex Madonna straddled Justin on stage more than once when hawking “4 Minutes” in 2008. Whether or not anything untoward has happened between them, A-Rod and Cammy certainly have plenty in common.

When tabloids tried to play up the frustratingly amicable split between Madonna and Jesus Luz, we guessed the Material Mom took his departure in stride because she knew there was plenty more where that chiseled DJ/model came from. Proving the point (well, maybe we should avoid the word “proof” when discussing these things) is the Daily Mail‘s assertion that Madge is slowly sinking her talons into another spicy studmuffin, model/Single Man actor Jon Kortajarena. The pair supposedly first met at the film’s New York premiere last December. “Jon looked slightly uncomfortable with the attention but was, nonetheless, flattered,” said their source. “She has made some enquiries about him and has found out a bit more about some of his future modeling gigs in a bid to use her influence to his advantage. She is going to invite him to some social events in New York.” Some social events…in her pants.
Of course, no tabloid would let Madonna go back to the beefcake buffet table with pride, so this news has to really be about her alleged resentment towards the prodigal Luz. “She’s furious and feels humiliated…She feels he has her to thank for his modeling success and is calling all her designer friends, telling them not to use him.” Like his return to obscurity wasn’t already a given. People, let a player play! We just hope Mr. Kortajarena can think up dates more glamorous than donning ski masks to see Avatar.
